Major Nelson has announced that the first of a four-part dashboard update for the XBox 360 is now available. The new update introduces PayPal as an alternate form of payment for customers in the U.S. and some customers internationally.
Once user’s PayPal account is integrated to XBox Live account on XBox.com, users can start using PayPal as a billing option to buy content using the service instead of using their credit cards or MS points on Marketplace.
This system update also brings an auto-standby feature that will put your console on standby to save power if it has been left idle for over an hour, reducing power consumption. This feature will be available under Auto-Off in Console Settings after the update is downloaded.
Unfortunately, this feature will not be available for customers in India, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Japan, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and Taiwan.
